Exercise-induced ast: ... asthma (or EIA) jumps to mind as a possible cause of your symptoms, given your age. However, there are many other causes of cough & shortness of breath. We're not set up to give a diagnosis in this platform, so use HealthTap Prime to go over your symptoms & medications & condition with a live doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. You may need blood &/or pulmonary tests to confirm. EIA treatable
